of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting a single coin valued at $1 trillion. using that to increase the debt limit. a number of stories saying that basically, this is not going to happen. his is what is reclined -- this -- what ezra kline writes he point

: mitch in las vegas is a gun owner. good morning. caller: thank you for accepting my call. host: did you go to the gun show that i was just reading about? caller: this year i have not been, but i have in the past. what it is, it brings to the people in the gun world and in the gun stores new products that are available coming out the next year and it gives people a chance to catch up and see what the difference is. just like going to go to show. different models from one year to another year. i certainly could not support any executive orders by anybody, because i don't really think the problem is with the gun itself. i think it is kind of ironic when you watch hollywood stars get paid $30 million, $40 million, and the more gory the movie is, the more people run there and the more the movie makes. they will stand around and accept these $40 million checks. there are a lot of people with mental problems that go to the same movies that you and i may go to. to them, they're living in a fantasy world. they actually think they might be john rambo or other people. it is ironic that the same pe

people their bizarre interpretations of sri lanka with amputations -- in interpretations of share real la -- sharia law with amputations and they destroyed monuments in timbuktu and and more. and their so-called the high against the world, to train fighters how to do that. those are their objectives. as far as what the french are bringing to the fight, i think this intervention, however necessary, the french were not able to bring to bear the forced that perhaps their grandfathers' would have under the same circumstances. the required health from great britain and canada and ultimately the united states for airlift, refueling help from the danes, now the u.s. will help to fuel the airplanes. certainly there's european investment that is telling appeared that will be the real question. having retaken timbuktu and ultimately two other towns, how the french and african countries are even more poorly resourceful. the topography is a little different from the analogy you mentioned, but there will be a garrison surrounded by a vast expanse which is controlled by the enemy. that will be really t

anything. there is no blood oath. it is that is who i am going to be meeting with. but i am going to call it as i see it. host: senator angus king, justin is on the phone, las vegas. caller: can you support in remarks as a way to get congressman to talk to each other again -- earmarks as a way to get congressmen to talk to each other again? guest: earmarks and corker are in the same category. -- pork are in teh samhe same category. the idea of these tiny things going into a larger appropriations bill that nobody knows about or sees i do not think is a good idea. i think this process should be opened. there should be a justification for it. it should be part of an open process. the second part of your question, getting congressman to talk to each other is really important. one of the problems here -- i did not know if you're watching earlier, but i mentioned that i work here almost 40 years ago -- is relationships. one of the things that has changed is that the airline service is so much better, everyone goes home for the weekend. families are back home. the relationships are not built. th
